(ConservativeHub.com) – Steve Marshall, Alabama’s attorney general has sent a letter requesting for a probe to be launched into the reason why President Joe Biden is choosing to not move the headquarters of Space Command to Huntsville, according to a report from Fox News.
The letter sent to Elizabeth Field, the Director of Defense Capabilities and Management for the Government Accountability Office (GAO), and Randolph Stone, the Assistant Inspector General (IG) of the Department of Defense (DOD) was obtained by Fox News Digital. In it, Marshall stated that following an intense vetting process that lasted close to two years, Redstone Arsenal in Huntsville, Alabama was selected as the ideal location for the headquarters of the Space Command.
He added that the announcement noted that the Air Force had considered six different locations that could have worked for the headquarters and ranked them based on several factors, including community support, infrastructure capacity, and the Defense Department costs. Following all these considerations, Huntsville was selected as the best location.
The Alabama attorney general noted that the GAO had also previously reported that the location in Huntsville was preferred for the headquarters. Despite all this work though, government officials announced on July 31, 2023, that Biden had changed his mind and that the Space Command would not be moved from its current location in Colorado to Huntsville. He added that according to many news reports, General James Dickinson worked to convince Biden that Colorado was the correct location.
Marshall said that based on property records from Colorado, Dickinson had multiple reasons to recommend that the headquarters remain in Colorado permanently.
